Joined a work colleague for a delicious Friday lunch around 11:30. The parking lot was packed, as it usually is but we were seated right away in the outdoor area. Tables sit on crushed rock & there was a beautiful breeze making our lunch delightful...More

The atmosphere is intimate but still invites family. The breakfast was very good. I even took lunch to go. You could be romantic, a visitor or just plain single and hungry. Patachou's accommodates all comers. I felt catered too. The new enlarged location still allows...More

Great little restaurant with delicious and innovative dishes including soups, salads, sandwiches, egg dishes, wonderful cakes, and cocktails and coffee.

Very loud - music, kitchen noises, etc. only four tables filled but can't carry on a conversation. Not used to getting my own coffee- everyone up and down and running into each other. Prefer no flavors but that's not an optionMore

I love the food at Cafe Patachou and also loved the location on 126th street. The new location on Main Street is too loud and not a neighborhood restaurant. We won't be returning to this location.More

Visited the new location at 5790 E Main Street, Carmel, on opening day. Nice crowd, new building is much larger, more outdoor space, always friendly & outgoing service. The noise level with the music was a bit loud - nothing inside to soften it. Everyone...More

This place was top notch! As you walk in, the cage sets the vibe as a student union for adults- such a clever and creative idea. I chose to eat breakfast and ordered the cuban breakfast and grabbed a self-serve coffee (three amazing flavors to...More

Stopped in for breakfast. Liked the fact there was a grab a cup of coffee and seat yourself. Waitress promptly followed up with offerings and as a snob, I ordered pouched eggs, crisp bacon with dry sourdough toast. All made to perfection.
